Mavic just launched a new line dubbed XA pro. Consisting of an all new helmet and shoe, the brand are clearly continuing their efforts in the apparel and protective wear realm. Full details direct from Mavic in the press release below.
XA Pro Shoes
When you’re taking on the trails, a good pedal connection can make the difference between riding hard all day or tapping out early. Which is why we’ve made it such a priority in the XA PRO.
The solution is our new Energy Grip Trail + outsole, which gives you the kind of connection that keeps your rhythm strong and energy efficient for longer.
At the same time it also features Contagrip® and a new lugs geometry, giving you powerful traction on the most challenging trails when you’re off the bike.
For comfort we’ve added our Ergo Fit Cushion insole, offering superior cushioning on and off the bike. The Ergo Dial QR closure gives fast and adjustable fit, while the top strap keeps your foot supported in all the right places.
We’ve designed the XA PRO with a roomier fit for superior step-in- comfort, and we’ve added welded toe protection to keep you protected.
